Advancing Sustainability Using ICT

The environmental issues we now face are believed to be the result of our social systems. Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has the potential to help us better understand, monitor in read-time, and reduce our impact on the environment. AITIS Lab, in the Department of Engineering Science, is committed to utilize the engineering expertise and research activity of its faculty to initiate innovative and sustainable graduate and undergraduate projects to educate future environmentally responsible and skilled engineers. We work with local industries and organizations to provide sustainable engineering solutions. Click here to learn more about our research activities and ongoing projects .....more; / Main Page.

Moveable Mechanical Platform for Testing

A major challenge radiation therapy is to determine the amount of radiation that will be taken up by the liver, kidneys and tumor, etc. The name of such testing is called “dosimetry”.  Dosimetry becomes particularly challenging when different body organs move in different directions, e.g., lungs moving up and down. The purpose of this project is to design a configurable mechanical platform that can simulate the impact of moving organs during radiation therapy.
